The US and South Korea announced that the annual large-scale exercises, which were a ccommon feature of the defence relationship between the two militaries, will end and be re-configured into smaller manoeuvres.
The troops titled their head backwards as the Marine Instructor dripped the blood from the snake into their throats.
The exercise will finish with a battle group experiment, where the best ideas and products will be tested in the toughest of simulated operational environments, a statement from the MOD in London added.
Russia has announced that it is planning to hold massive war games involving 300,000 military personnel next month. These will be the biggest military manoeuvres held by the country since a Cold War drill in 1981.
